Love both of these, strong geometric shapes.
V2 deserves its own day in the spotlight.

Two strong images taken with that graphic designer's eye!
Beuatiful lines, shapes and muted colours.

Good shots, but v2 is quite amazing. That deserves to be up front. I can see you working this one into something magical.
I would suggest a crop at the top to eliminate the upper windows.

I thought perhaps they were a giant pair of specs Helen,
and the REP building was the Royal Eye Pavilion !!
Good shots.

Definitely a place for us photographers, not book reading! Wink Two great well-seen shots, Helen, hard to choose a fave, so half a vote for each Smile

Now brace yourself and sit down in case you reel from shock at what I am about to say, but I think V1 might make a really good BLACK & WHITE shot! V2 might be worth a try too as there are strong shapes there.

Regardless of my mono-tone-ous suggestion, these are well observed and captured (sorry, couldn't resist)!

The unique composition of No. 2 has the greater impact and wins my vote.

Two excellent compositions, V2 perhaps the more strongly graphic: like a giant claw reaching out to grasp the viewer. I might just be tempted to crop V2 slightly to remove the area of glass dome and next-door's dormer window; but then, tomorrow morning I might just want them back!

I can easily see both as mono contenders. Of course!

Bill
